With authorities in an apparent slumber, the prices of almost all essentials, particularly vegetables and eggs, have witnessed a sharp increase while frequent and unscheduled power cuts have returned to haunt the people in Kashmir valley.
People alleged that rise in prices and power crises is a déjà vu, which happens every year after “Darbar”, the seat of the government after it shifts to winter capital Jammu.
The prices of local vegetables, including Hak (green leaves), Kadam, carrot, radish and turnip has also witnessed a sharp increase.
Kashmir valley is depending on imports of almost everything from different parts of the country, particularly northern states.
However, the divisional administration has failed to fix the prices of essentials, including vegetables and other daily consumable items.
